Senior Artist - Skellefteå

If creating art, achieving work-life balance and making amazing games on a team of great people sounds like the next step in your career, you just might be our next senior artist.

Our mission at Turborilla is to bring the world of action sports fans together by creating world-class games and experiences. We are now looking to bring experienced, fun and engaged talents together to help us develop the next phase of Mad Skills BMX 2 in our new office in Skellefteå.

Who we are

Turborilla is one of Sweden’s leading independent game studios, responsible for the Mad Skills franchise of action sports games. These games have been installed 80 million times across the world, with more than 27 billion races having been initiated by our players. According to our rough calculations, that’s something like 6075 years of toilet time.

We strive to be the best at what we do, and to have the best people around to do it.

We are looking for an experienced generalist artist with the ability to work with both 2D and 3D

You have prior experience in creating 2D and 3D art for games and can show this in your portfolio. 

In this role you will

Create 2D and 3D assets for mobile games such as characters, vehicles, environment assets and props. You'll work closely with our development team to create UI art through all stages, from the mock-up phase to final production. At times you will work with material/shader creation, as well as assist our producer to estimate and plan art production. You will act as a mentor for our more junior artists.

We are a small team, so cross-discipline skills are highly valued.
